Egypt

Planter and Water Feature

Jan Ostwald

The pyramids and desert sands of ancient Egypt provided the inspiration for this urban planter, created by turning a pyramid-shaped form upside-down. The planter can hold water as easily as it can contain earth, making it a versatile feature for any terrace or garden. Made from COR-TEN steel, the ashtray’s surface oxidises over time to create a beautifully weathered patina. The planter can be fitted with an inner container and irrigation tank to keep the compost moist.

Assembly and placement

Freestanding. The standard frame is secured to the ground through a bolt-hole in the centre of the base plate. If a bolt-hole is not required, please advise us when you place your order.

Maintenance

When used as a water basin, the unit requires regular cleaning, as the steel may initially discolour the surface beneath the planter. For best results, surround the unit with gravel, sand or soil. Note that stains on granite can be washed away with a solution containing 10% hydrochloric acid.

Variants

The planter/water basin is made in one size but available in three different heights: 60 cm, 120 cm and 180 cm.

Character

Egypt is a perfect shape for plants, flowers and blossoming vines, and its watertight construction makes it ideal for use as a water feature or fountain.
